As a first, this time around the individual tracks go less by titles than by explanatory cues, for in the first, “Bridging,” we find connections already being made between disparate continents. Its guitar-like exuberance and melodic percussion (courtesy of Alain Joule) skirt arco territories toward stillness. “The Flow” brings about a sense of fluidity through electronic whispers, Joule’s vivid comments accentuating the bass’s inner core and painting its outer skin with observations. Phillips elicits a range of avian effects, from twittering concealed in foliage to lanky elegance of cranes and waterfowl, both hunting and in the rapture of a mating dance. “Ripples Edge” does indeed trace the water’s rim with its opening harmonics and navigates surface tensions like a water skater.

This group is further evidence that jazz is a universal music knowing neither language nor geographic boundary. The countries represented at this session are Italy, Holland, England/ Belgium (Philip Catherine), and the United States, all recording for a Dutch label. The session is a bit of a departure by leader and bop artist Enrico Pieranunzi in that it is devoted to the exploration of standard material. Perhaps this is due to the presence of one of the more lyrical guitar players around these days, former wunderkind Catherine. Whatever, Pieranunzi does not leave behind his use of modern jazz figures to give new luster to these standards.

Svjatoslav Richter, unlike his childood friend Gilels, was not an ardent proponent of Brahms' repertoire. Considering that in 1948 Richter performed only the famous Concerto in B flat, Op. 81, this rare recital makes the young Brahms come across as an intuitive, even prophetic composer rather than merely discursive.

This disc includes three of the 'late' sonatas, including a particularly memorable Hammerklavier. The program also features the Piano Sonatas Nos.27 and 28 in performances that simultaneously emphasize the legato elements and display Richter's prodigious interpretive talents to the fullest.

Conductor Edward Gardner and the Bergen Philharmonic here commence their series devoted to Leos Janaceks orchestral works. This opening salvo features three works from Janaceks late, great period: The Sinfonietta, one of the composers most successful and popular works; the Capriccio, with pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet taking on the left-hand solo part, and, restored to its original, striking orchestration by Sir Charles Mackerras, the suite of instrumental interludes from Janaceks 1923 opera The Cunning Little Vixen.

Korean-born Dutch harpist Lavinia Meijer states as her goal "to make the harp better known as a solo instrument, with all its possibilities which are often still unknown to the wider audience." With this release she accomplishes her goal, not so much technically as musically. The harp does not do so much here that the attentive listener to the big early film scores won't have heard before. But Meijer's album falls nicely into the group of releases that are reconstructing the virtuoso solo repertoire of a century ago, rediscovering gems that were swept aside by self-serving modernist imperatives.

The sound is spectacular in whatever format you choose but the jump to Blu-ray is, as in vision, a leap forward. None of which would matter were the performances not also uniformly excellent: This is a superbly alive performance of the Britten Simple Symphony, making it sound a much more ambitiouswork than usual. A demonstration recording!

Tokyo was established in Frankfurt during 1979 by Caribbean born bassist Ken Taylor, having previously played with Supermax and with John Mayall. Taylor joined forces with Austrian musicians Robert Musenbichler and Fritz Matzka (both former Wolfgang Ambros and Georg Danzer associates) and also roped in his ex-Supermax colleague Lothar Krell (who had been playing with the German Jazz Rock troupe Paladyn) and former Axe and Schloss man Klaus Luley.
The debut Tokyo album spawned a quite popular European hit in the track 'Tokyo' itself, garnering the band a multitude of TV appearances and the promise of a strong second album. However, the 1982 album 'Fasten Your Seat Belts', failed to take off and Krell left the band to work on his Klangwelt Studio before the recording of the third album 'San'. Krell was replaced by Hired Help Band keyboardist Volker Barber.

Opening slowly with the dark, swampy "Born on the Bayou," Bayou Country reveals an assured Creedence Clearwater Revival, a band that has found its voice between their first and second album. It's not just that "Born on the Bayou" announces that CCR has discovered its sound – it reveals the extent of John Fogerty's myth-making.

Animal Magnetism is the seventh studio album by German rock band Scorpions, released in 1980. The RIAA certified the record as Gold on 8 March 1984, and Platinum on 28 October 1991. So, Scorpions were cool in the '70s and then popular in the '80s, not that you need anyone to tell you that, but it'll make things much quicker for you when deciding which albums to listen to. Animal Magnetism finds itself wedged fairly uncomfortably between the two talents of the band - those of writing fun, exciting hard rock songs and writing badass proto-metal songs. There's a little bit here for everybody and even the cover strikes a better note than that of Virgin Killer or Lovedrive without losing that dangerous sexual edge the Germans were aiming for.
